~♥~ I WISH WEDNESDAY ~♥~


Before the post begins....Ya gotta check out this AWESOME award bestowed upon my by a seriously funny, sweet, and brave lady. It is the coolest award in blogland...and I am so honored that she'd bestow it on me! Go say HI to Quirky here. If she's not on your blog list...you ain't cool.

Thanks woman.....who knew getting mooned would make me feel so good!



Now on to I wish Wednesday..........

I wish...................... That global warming wasn't just a scam perpetrated upon us by greedy morons.......


Because we're having another...yes ANOTHER BLASTED BLIZZARD and quite frankly I'm getting sick of all this snow. The last 3 storms haven't even melted yet...and we're supposed to get another 8 to 10 inches today.....Yeah... Global warming would be a VERY GOOD THING.



I wish................everyone would go over and visit Elisabeth at Roys Progress she is the nicest lady and boy howdy you should see the wonderful giveaway she is having...don't miss out on this one!

I wish.........................all the stores I shopped in had cool bags like this one......


And especially this one!!!


I wish......................creativity was one of my talents. Check out this adorable Easter banner that Penny made. It is the cutest dang thing!! Go have a look here. Her blog is a new one for me and I'm really enjoying my visits there......now if I could just have the ability to actually make one............


I wish...REALLY WISH..........spandex had never been invented. (this is so very wrong on so many levels) .....(and I apologize for any damage this picture may cause)

***warning....do NOT enlarge this....it only makes it worse****


I wish.................That I had the adventurous spirit to live In Braja's shoes for a month or two. What an amazing life she is living! Check her out at Lost and found in India...And Braja.....since this post is all about wishing....you WISHED FOR THIS....so here it is. You are now an official Crumpet Strumpet lol


I wish................that I wasn't addicted to this show....or that at least I had the decency to be embarrassed and ashamed. But I'm NOT!!! I can't help myself...they own me!


I wish...............that every one's parents were having as much fun as my incredible Mom and Dad. Check out my mom's new toy! ( I'm sure she'll let you on it too dad..) I also wish (and pray) that you two are CAREFUL out there. I you both soooo much!


I wish...................all you cat lovers weren't gonna kill me for this one...but dang this toy just made me LAUGH! I'm getting Ozzie one for sure!


I wish...............to leave you all with at least one little giggle.......if this doesn't do it....then you're beyond fixing !

Oh gosh I can't believe that spandex one!!!!!!! TOO FUNNY!! We too are hooked on American Idol!

A New England Life said...

Honestly I can't believe that Spandex one is real, but maybe . . .

Your parents are a hoot! You and your husband should get out there and join them! lol!

For me it's jockeying between American Idol and The Biggest Loser. Love them both!

One thing I don't love, all this snow! What's the deal? Mother Nature is giving us the 'what for'! lol!

Smilingsal said...

Whoa, that spandex shot! I'm still blinking! Will someone please tell these guys about CUPS?

::Jan:: said...

Those spandex guys will be on my mind all day long. Thanks. I mean, I could have come up with that design. Love your wishies.

Heather said...

Oh my goodness, I love that Crumpet Strumpet button! I now aspire to one day be an official Crumpet Strumpet myself............ maybe if I can ever get out from under the mountain of boxes, wadded up, crusty Puffs Pluses (did I mention my child is singlehandedly producing more phlegm than Mother Nature is snow outside right now? And we're supposed to be getting another foot of the white stuff today outside), and of course that new foot of white stuff coming down outside my window.....

I also *big, red, puffy heart* American Idol. Loving Kara the new judge (how long until it is just "Kara" like "Randy" or "Simon" or "Paula" I wonder?) and have last night's show DVRed to watch tonight, woo-hoooooooooooo!

Well, I'm rambling because I'm procrastinating. Funny thing: the boxes stacked up in my kitchen, newly acquired from the accommodating liquor store up the road? They don't pack themselves! Huh. Phooey.

(Oh and PS, even as a total Cat Lover and as one who is This Close to Happily Becoming a Crazy Lady - the only thing keeping me from it is Hubby - I still laughed at that dog toy. Hee!! Funny is funny is funny, just like Clooney is swoony is Clooney. :D )

Quirkyloon said...

Thanks Nikki, you're such a sweetie!

AND...

that spandex pic is to DIE for!

I can't stop laughing!

Girl, you're gonna give me a heart attack!!! Or I'm gonna die of not being able to catch my breath!

I love it!

LOL LOL LOL LOL

Happy To Be said...

WAY TO GO MAMA!! now thats my kind of woman..great post Nikki..love the bunny one..and girl I did enlarge the picture..hey I'm old not dead..and I am so hooked on American Idol also..watched it last night..some of them made me wish I was that bunny with no ears..hope you have a great day...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Plum Bush Cottage said...

Amen to the spandex! It just shouldn't be allowed.

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Nikki, Nikki, Nikki, I am on my way to work. I just had to stop by for a minute. I just about peed my pants. Your mom is one cool lady!!
Hugs, Terrie

tammy said...

Too late. I enlarged. Picking out my next husband right now.

Your mom is so cool!

And I am not a cat lover so I am giggling at that toy. A lot.

Andrea Villarreal said...

Your blog makes me laugh so hard. The last picture of the bunnies my husband brought home from work a few years ago and my daughter still has it posted on her bulletin board. The first time I ever went on you blog was when the dog exploded in your truck. We have four dogs and I could definetly sympathize with your plight:) My daughter and I laughed out loud at that. Thanks;)

squawmama said...

OMG girlfriend I am LMAO... This post was to dang cute... You have the best imagination ever... Loved the moon... LOL LOL Have a wonderful day oh goddess of fun...

(((HUGS)))
Donna

Bridget said...

Oh you are too much! The bags are fantastic. It took me a while to see the gun, I was so focused on the letters and the shorts weren't funny but your warning was hysterical.
The bunnies were the pièce de résistance! ROLFMAO

Tink said...

Oh my...hilarious pictures! Made me laugh hard! You are so funny. Thanks for the uplift today as I just found out my office will be closed down in 60-90 days! At least I have time to job hunt. Have a great day!

Nana said...

Oh, you make me laugh!!!!!! I have to get the kitty toy for Papa. He used to sing this dumb song to the kids. "Smashed Cat in the Middle of the Road, Smashed cat, smashed cat." Then he would laugh, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, while the kids were screaming. He's sick and he would love the kitty toy. Oh I forgot I have an award for you at my place.

Nana

Justine said...

First off, how dare you complain about snow, while I sit here suffering through 75 degree weather in JANUARY!
Okay, I had to click on the spandex picture. I wouldn't have if you told me not to, but you know how that goes. OMG, I think I felt a little twinge of something while viewing. Maybe you could post a few more pics like that. It might clear out my hoo hoo cobwebs.
Now wait. Shouldn't *I* get a Crumpet Strumpet since I won????

Justine :o )

Tristan said...

HAHA! Oh, the spandex..MY EYES..ewww!

I love American Idol too..the just did the town that is about 2 hours away from me, crazy weirdos!

I've been out all morning taking pictures..lol..I'll post later today!

Marrdy said...

Oh crap Nikki. I am blind now. Not jsut the spandex but the dead kitty. WAAHAA! You are so funny.

Did you cry during the 4th quarter of the game? I hate Ginobli. (I really need to stop all this NBA hate. It will give me ulcers!)

Marrdy said...

I forgot to wish...I wish the Jazz would win again!

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

LOL! The rabbit joke is hilarious! Another great post! :)

Stay warm! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Oh, and I am a American Idol junkie too! I watch it way more than my FIFTEEN year old daughter! Something is terribly wrong here! LOL!

Tootsie said...

I wish I would remember to NOT read your blog until I am not expected to have nice makeup to go somewhere! I am laughing so hard at that spandex comment that I have now got tears and makeup all over my face!
I also wish you a great day! stay warm and dry...if it is any consolation...it is finally come from -40C up to -1C here today...but....but....BUT...we are supposed to get an inch or two of snow!

Kristen said...

I hope your mom and dad are safe too with their new toy. It looks fun!

I would have taken the whole head off those bunnies!

Kristin said...

I wish i haddent just peed my pants from laughing at that spandex pic.

Chris said...

Dear Lord, you did it again. My DH came in my office to see what was wrong with me, he thought I was crying. LOL Of course, I had to enlarge the spandex one, good grief don't they have a mirror in the house? Loved that pistol bag. I laugh so hard on some of the comments you get too. You're to much.

Love ya,
Chris

Anonymous said...

I wish the PATS were in the Super Bowl on Sunday...I'd like to see my Tommy in that spandex...(oh stop it Kathy get a grip)

I so agree Nikki I think Mother nature is giving us the finger, I know I didn't do anything, you lol ??? I have had enough S N O W

Your parents are great, good for them !!! You wouldn't get me near one of those, my hubby went through a phase when we were younger. I told him go right ahead but remember whats good for the goose is good for the gander, that quieted down Mr. Save-a-Buck (I affectionately call him this we actually balance each other out)

Great post,
Kathy :)

ps can I take that mooned award for the family blog ??

Shauna said...

I l♥ve your posts! ♥ Hugs!

Sandy Toes said...

Oh my those bags are so funny!

Now...I was eating my lunch while looking at the spandex picture..thank you very much...how gross!

You are a funny one!
-sandy toe

Melissa said...

My eyes! My eyes!! Spandex for men SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED EVER!!! Where were these boys' wives?!?!

Thanks goodness you had the funnies with it, I'm still giggling over the cat toy, and must have for my "kids"......

Thanks for the laughs today!

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...

I wish I had never seen that spandex picture!! LOL! yikes! do they know what they look like? Congratulations on your award and I love that crumpet strumpet!

Your Mom's a hoot! she should tell your Dad to get his own cycle :)

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
Kathi :)

Nancy said...

Nikki, How in the world do you come up with this stuff? You need an award for that spandx pic. Lord, help us all! LOL Your too much, girl! Nancy

Rachael said...

The question is.....what do they have in that Spandex? Some of those guys....

Oh never mind!

KC Mom said...

I think after seeing the spandex, my eyes are ruined.

Lisa Loo said...

I woke up this morning feeling unexplainably happy and when I logged on to my blog--I rememberd why--your wish wednesday!

AWESOME award!

Global warming is such hoo hah

The BAG is the BOMB! I would feel so empowered carrying it! The gun one--not the mouth. For some weird reason that one slightly disturbs me.

The crafty bunny swag was cute until I red the last cartoon and thought how funny it would be to cut off the first ones ears and the next ones bum--etc.....

THe spandex picture is SOOO disturbing and hilarios on so many levels. Obviously designed by a woman and those men---they all look so--sooo--constipated or something......gives new meaning to the phrase--hows it hangin??!!

How much chocolate would I have to send you to get one of those award?! But can my dog be wearing camo??

Your Mom is my hero.

Heres how stupid I am--it took me forever to figure out the dog toy. I thought maybe it was a deformed monkey and I couldn't get the humor.

And the last one--roll on the floor funny--it reminds me of a dog chasing his tail or my daily life---round and round and round it goes---who's on first??!! Whats on second.......

roy/elisabeth dean said...

I'm printing the spandex picture to slip under one of our manager's door!
Susie the pug would be a beautiful crumpet-strumpet!
I hope you thaw out soon! I would LOVE to see some snow~ we never get any in bama!
Thank you for mentioning my giveaway...I hope I get lots of entries~ this is FUN!

Swirl Girl said...

You can tell your trying to channel your inner warm weather spirit with two Easter related (read: spring) wishes.

I wish it warms up for you!

Amy said...

These posts always make me smile, if not laugh. Keep 'em coming.

Lynette said...

Nikki - You're MY idol and you totally crack me up. Cannot wait for all of them to get to Hollywood and see who they start weeding out!

Spandex - EWWWW.

Love your folks' new toys - way cool!!

John Deere Mom said...

You'd think the guys in Spandex could have coordinated their packages so everything was pointing in the same direction...or not. :)

Penny said...

Nikki,
Thank you,for adding my Easter banner to your post!
I disagree about your creativity..
The prize wheel was beyond, creative!
The spandex freaks, enlarged are to scary. Or, am I the freak for enlarging it?
Thanks again!

Jen said...

I know this is old news now, but really. Team Spandex is just to much. I think the picture (or parts of it) have been burned onto my retinas for time and all eternity. It's like the worst case ever of TMI.

jill jill bo bill said...

How WEIRD! I have that spandex piture hanging above my mantle. The middle guy is mine. All mine.

Pedaling said...

Spandex on men so very very wrong.

your parents so very very cool!

damn that global warming!

tam said...

Hey Nikki girl! I've seen that stuffed animal before-pretty darn funny! And WoW your parents really are pretty cool-that is some bike!
We are into American Idol at our house as well-crap the try outs are the best arent they? Some of those people that think they can sing-kills me! Thanks for another fun post sister! have an awesome day!~Tam:D!

Jamie said...

You are too funny Nikki...I always LOVE your I wish Wednesday's! I got that chocolate bunny card for Easter one year from my Mum and thought I was gonna kill over in laughter! And you just HAD TO SAY, 'don't enlarge it didn't you' ;-) That's just not right I tell ya, hehe.

bj said...

I couldn't help it...I just HAD to enlarge the Spandex photo and you were right...DAAAANG..."they" nearly knocked my eyeballs right out of my head...ewwwwwww.....wonder why "that" part of the human body can feel so good and look so GROSS !! ;>)

Erin said...

That spandex picture is awful! But I love the little "mooned" award. So cute!

Bobbi Jo said...

BWAHHHHHAHHHA Love it! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

ann said...

The only reason you told us not to enlarge is because you knew we would.And--------you're right.It got worse...Ann

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Mooned award is sweet... always amazes me how creative the award creators are. And spandex... a real no no after age 50 um, or did I give it up at age 49?

mbkatc230 said...

I'm so with you on the Global Warming. What a racket!

I posted about the give-away on Roy's Progress today as well. I'm so glad I found her or she found me. I think she found me through you actually - so thank you! :)

Kris said...

You are hysterical! And I am glued to the telly for American Idol too! LOVE it!
And God Bless your Mom and Dad. I lost my father 5 years ago, and it rocked our world. My Mama is still in a daze.

Bo said...

Nikki, Nikki, Nikki...you knew darn good & well I was going to enlarge the spandex picture, didn't you???? OK, I choose #4...now 'fess up...which one did you choose???..I adore your mom & dad's lifestyle...they are living life to the fullest for sure! BTW, Lil Bear says "woof" to Ozzie & Crumpet... & I thank you too, dear one...wouldn't it be great if an orphan like Lil Bear won this contest & could bequeath the $$$ prize to a "no kill" shelter?!
Many hugs, ♥ Bo

salmagundi said...

'my butt hurts' 'what?'....hahahahahaha!

Kritta22 said...

Lori said...

Nikki,
Thanks for the visit. Glad you came by stop by any time. I will have to say that I have been to your blog many times and you crack me up!!!! You are one funny lady... I loved the post about your T.V. and selling the stars. Well basically all of your post. Again, I am glad you came over. I will be back.

imjacobsmom said...

I hope your Mom gives you a ride! That is soooo cool!
And that spandex - yikes! ~ Robyn

Mariafer said...

Love it!!!

Michael said...

Ok, I'm dying at the spandex pic...whoa nelly, beans and franks? Good gosh.

I wanna win a Crumpet Strumpet...please. Pretty please with a cherry on top ;)

Becky said...

Girl, I did it against my better judgement.....I enlarged the spandex. NASTY!!!! I love the bunny funny! LOL!!!!

jeanne said...

Ok Nikki, I can't stop laughing. I had to study the 'what' for a second. Ok I'm slow. I actually think the ears half gone is funnier than the butt missing. LOL.

I too am addicted to IDOL. I so love it. Beverly was annoyed because I wouldn't talk to her last night when Idol came on. WHAT is she thinking?

You post as usual is terrific. Your mom and dad ROCK.

Love ya...Jeanne

Shannon said...

I clicked on the spandex pic before reading your warning...

MY EYES!!! MY EYES!!!

Lee Laurie said...

I totally think that the spandex for men should be outlawed for sure! I took my daughter to see "The Nutcracker" ballet last year and the guys wearing those tights were disgusting! My daughter told me that if she would have been one of the moms there with a little girl, she would have had to cover her eyes or get up and leave. Everytime the guys came out dancing, the little girls in front of us died out laughing! You make me laugh so much! Thanks!

Oh and the bags were so unique! Never seen those before!

wendy said...

I shouldn't have looked at this before going to bed -Spandex photo will haunt me all night. (ooo-ick) Really, Your parents bought that. Damn!!!! AND - I too am an American Idol addict...along with Dancing with Stars.......I live vicariously through them!!!!!!!

Stevie said...

Love the shopping bags...and you know it......American Idol rocks!!

Eudea-Mamia said...

I joined Twitter last night - it suggested some other people I might be interested in following...one was Al Gore.

There is not enough money.

Stay warm!

thedomesticfringe said...

Ya, spandex is NOT good. I love the dog toy.

-FringeGirl

Sue said...

I stole your bunny cartoon...sorry I couldn't help it...and I love Mom's new ride...she looks like a real hoot...you must get your wackiness from her...Tell her to be careful out there on her HOG....

Ma'dame French said...

I came over saw the spandex and had to go wash my eyes out....why oh why.....Thanks for the chuckles;) French

Deb said...

Nikki!!! LOL!!! LOVED THE BUNNIES. LOL!!! Tell your mom I love her new wheels and be safe! SPANDEX? I'm caught up now everything is great as always! Enjoying my family! Deb

The Muse said...

in the midst of work day chaos...you have given me REPRIEVE !!!
LOL

Fifi Flowers said...

FUNNY as always!
OH MY... those bicycle racers... I guess there are alot of photos like that during the Tour de France... I've never paid attention... was I blind... hmmmm!
That is some ride your mom got!

French Fancy said...

*I wish......................creativity was one of my talents*

Nikki, you are mad (or potty as we Brits say). You are one of the most creative people around.

Anyway, goggled at the Spandex boys and thought your mum looked lovely. Everything else just made me laugh

Southern Lady said...

Nikki, I love the little chocolate bunnies! I'm sure I will be reminded of that every time I see someone bite into one.

Congratulations on winning Sally's apron. I can't wait to see your post about it!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

okay, that spandex one is sick beyond words. I'm laughing so hard that I could pee myself. Of course, because I'm a sick puppy I will be send my gal pal over to take a look. LOL.

Jessica said...

I so look forward to your I Wish Wednesday's. I know I can always find a giggle or two here. Love the bunnies~

Hugs~ J

Anonymous said...

Nikki,
We are headed out for a couple of days on my "new toy" and I am even going to let your dad come along with me (if he is good and will wear Spandex). Eat your heart out - it will be in mid 70's here in good old AZ.
Love, Mom

Sincerely Yours said...

OMG Nikki! The spandex one reminded me of when i took my daughter at 4yrs to her first nutcracker ballet and she whispered to me "it looks like the guys have fruit in their pants!" I lost it and was getting looks as tears rolled down my eyes and she kept looking at me innocently! So thanks for a memory! I adore the bunny one too!! Oh I know what you mean about the snow; we got half an inch yesterday!!!lol Thanks for my morning MEDS(laughter!) Have a great weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette

ko said...

i am so blonde...it took me a minute to figure out the chocolate bunny picture!!!! WIERDO! U always CRACK ME UP! We are still loving the frame, and REBECCA says THANK YOU! I am also very thankful you refrained from showing any pictures of me this week! :)

Kyley

Braja said...

Ohmigod. OH MY GOD!!! YAY!!

Oh that bitch is goin' in my sidebar PERMANENTLY!! Mwwwwwahhhh!!!!

xoxoxo

Carolynn said...

Wow, you have quite the following...it took me, like, 5 minutes to scroll to the bottom and leave a comment.

I think every man should be required to wear spandex on a first date. You know, kind of like a truth in advertising, sort of thing.

LadyFi said...

Hilarious - as usual! Oh - and that spandex picture... oh.. left me reeling.

Mona said...

Naturally I enlarged it! Ya think I'm nuts!!! LOL...sorry...LOL

The Blonde Duck said...

The spandex one IS gross! But the bunny and strumpet are hilarious!

Heather said...

Love the warning at the bottom of the spandex post! Too funny!!

Aleta said...

Ok, the spandex picture has GOT to go! Lol. I'm a fan of American Idol too. Half the fun is listening to the ones who can't sing. LOVE your Mom's new toy! But - but - NOOOOO to the cat toy. Thanks for the laughs and congrats on the award!

Stacy's Random Thoughts said...

OMG you are HILARIOUS!!! Thanks for the laugh, I needed it! ;) Sorry you're getting inundated with snow - I keep trying to tell Mother Nature to send it here, but she's not listening to me. At. All. >;o)~

Michael said...

Woo hoo...a Crumpet Strumpet...I'm so excited! It's the little things in life, isn't it? LOL

Midwest Mommy said...

OMG! That spandex picture is so gross and yet so funny!

Cathy ~ Tadpoles and Teacups said...

I wish . . .
I'd discovered your blog before today!
Great post~

Cathy

The Hussy Housewife said...

Great! Global warming is just he new catch phrase just like Eating acid was in the 70's..it to shall melt away or melt in your mouth with time.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

The spandex pic.....uh.....umm...oh. my. goodness.

The middle one is mine, by the way!

Loved that smashed cat. Years ago when Beanie Babies were in their heyday, a company put out some Meanie Babies. In the local store, I found Splat the Road Kill Cat with a flat middle and tire tracks across him. He so went home with me and lived(?)on top of my computer monitor for a long time.

Saucy Scribe Debora said...

I hate the snow too...I wish it would just stop.

That Crumpet Strumpet is adorable, btw!

vintagewindow said...

I'm laughing so hard here. The inventor of spandex should be shot.

I will also unshamelessly admit to my addiction of American Idol.

Love the bunny pic. If only it was that easy to get rid of half my rear end.

Have a happy Friday,

Kris

Jenners said...

As always, these were great! And how exactly does one get to be a Crumpet Strumpet? Is there an application to fill out? A registration fee?

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

I wish...
I could be as funny as you!
I could get that many people to comment on one of my posts!
I hadn't seen the spandex picture! LOL Forever engraved in my mind now! LOL
I could be a Crumpet Strumpet!

You are a RIOT! ONE OF A KIND!

mrsben said...

The 'spandex' one appears to be the most controversial. I'm betting they all stuck socks in their shorts for the picture? Ha, ha, ha.
